Australia’s Newly elevated Minister of Resourses, Energy and Northern Australia has said Renewable energy, Wind farms and Solar will be a “key part” of the Federal Government’s energy statergy!

Policy manager for the Clean Energy Council Darren Gladman said Mr Frydenberg’s comments were “extremely encouraging” for the industry, “It is no secret that the last couple of years were both challenging and frustrating for the renewable energy industry under former prime minister Tony Abbott,” he said in a statement.

“The renewable energy industry is looking forward to working with Minister Frydenberg, as well as continuing to build on our relationship with Environment Minister Greg Hunt, who clearly recognises the potential of technologies like solar, wind, bio-energy and energy efficiency to create a strong platform for Australia’s future prosperity.

“Australia has some of the best renewable energy resources in the world, and we believe the new Government can see the job and investment benefits of these newer forms of energy for rural and regional areas of the country.”
